The gravel has occasional potholes which become puddles on wet days.
The gravel inner margin of the asphalt loop bounding Green Lake is a pleasure to run on. Much of it is generously wide, and it occasionally feeds onto dirt shortcuts. At a few points, one is forced onto asphalt to cross a bridge or skirt a building.
